Extracting multiple forms of data gets challenging (ICD 10 Codes, CPT Codes etc). ICD-10 codes are alphanumeric codes used by doctors, health insurance companies, and public health agencies across the world to represent diagnoses. Every disease, disorder, injury, infection, and symptom have its own ICD-10 code. These codes are used for everything from processing health insurance claims to tracking disease epidemics and compiling worldwide mortality statistics.
Extracting codes from standard terminologies is a regular and indispensable task often encountered in medical and healthcare fields. Diagnosis codes, procedure codes etc. are all manually extracted from patient records by trained human coders.
